(a) lol - that's pretty d*amn cool....

(b) does it work with the player, or only the recorder?

(c) i guess it would then be pretty easy to have "verbal button

(d) is it worthwhile to add to the menu structure something like
"verbal directory on/off", "verbal buttons on/off", etc.?

lol - what'll you guys think of next....
